Hey "peeps" . I am simply amazed at how clever and inventive this thread, and just about every other DIY thread on this entire site are!! This is our third year with chickens, and we are in the process of expanding our coop from one that houses five chickens (altho we only have 3 adult hens--lost two to a coyote attack , which will never happen again) to house our 3 hens and our 8 pullets. We are also in the process of changing up the feed system and the waterer. I digress....anyhow, we are getting a Brite Tap waterer. I have two questions about the Brite Tap before I make a mistake in what I buy. Here they are:
1) How many hens can reasonably be served with one Brite Tap (we were planning on just getting one for our eleen girls)
2) Does the Brite Tap fit onto the Coleman 5 gallon cooler as well as the Rubbermaid? It seems that I can get the Coleman for a lot cheaper than the Rubbermaid, tho they look the same.
Again, thank you so much for all of your wonderful ideas! BYC is THE BEST!
